All readers and writers are invited to speak up tomorrow as we put our heads together to discuss who this site will formally endorse.Â We are meeting at 7:00 p.m. at the Noodle House on Murfreesboro Road in LaV (they have free wi-fi).Â Ivy and another regular reader (Deborah) will be there to lead the discussion… I will be there, but probably late due to another unavoidable commitment.
We are asking the candidates to NOT attend this meeting.Â Sorry, but we want everyone to feel comfortable voicing why or why not an endorsement should be given.Â Of course, it’s a public restaurant so you have every right to come in…Â so if you were planning on eating there already, that’s fine.Â We’ll just point and whisper diplomatically talk about another office until your business is complete.
I have received a copy of one financial disclosure form already, but am going to try to get copies of all of them by tomorrow.Â If any candidate wants to submit a copy of their copy (stamped by the election commission, please) I would sincerely appreciate not having to come up with the bucks on my own since I’m fairly broke right now.Â If you want to submit your campaign financial disclosure form, please let me know by noon Tuesday (Oct 12) and drop it off at my office no later than 3:00 p.m. tomorrow (or call me). I work at Bob Parks Realty on Sam Ridley Parkway (next to Suntrust).
Finally, if any candidate seeking local office has anything to say before the endorsement, do so now or forever hold your peace!
